The most interesting project of a new wave of modern St.Petersburg's musical scene. To describe style of collective's music is extremely complex. Musicians call it «a new Russian primitivism ». Music includes the features of rock, jazz and improvising music. The most influenced names are German krautrock band CAN, ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO, SUN RA.
The group is a derivate from « Z ensemble », in which many Petersburg's musicians have played.
Despite of a rather long history, first official release is exhausted only 2002 year by the company "HOR records".
TMS is the constant participant of festivals of avant-garde art. The leader of the TMS – Dmitriy Kahovskiy has played with all considerable musicians in St. Petersburg. On a festival SKIF-6 he performed in a duet with the legendary American guitar player Eugene Chadbourne, on SKIF-7 he played with unique Dutch drummer Han Bennink.
Music by Kahovskiy and TMS will be used in some cinematographic projects («It is difficult to be God», А.German).
